Yesterday was photoshoot day, a long slog of editing and the first items are up, including this 1950s strapless bullet bra heart_eyes



Effie Butterworth was established by Ellis Stansfield in an effort to create the ultimate experience for lovers of lingerie, luxury and vintage combined. Our range of fine undergarments focuses on styles inspired by the 1920s, 30s and 40s, with a strong spotlight on wearability. It is of peak importance to us that only the finest quality fabrics and components are used to bring our designs to life; therefore you can expect to find pure silk satin, French cotton lace and gold plated hardware in many of our styles, to create a truly supreme finish.

Upon graduating in 2014 with a first class honours degree in Historical & Performance Costume, Ellis felt inspired to turn her hand to undergarments. Her love for vintage firmly in tow, Effie Butterworth was launched in the Spring of 2015 with our first collection; Nouveau. Featuring hand dyed silks crafted into a tap pants and bralets, heavy with vintage inspiration and created using couture techniques and hand finishing.

After a short break, primarily spent delving into the world of original vintage undergarments, Effie Butterworth lingerie is back with our second collection; Certain Surprise. Designed with the modern vintage lover in mind, these new styles are intended to inspire confidence and sex appeal, without loosing sight of luxury.

All of our garments are proudly made to order by hand in North Yorkshire, to allow for scrutinous quality control and freedom of design. Should you wish to delve beyond our existing offerings, we are now able to take orders for bespoke designs.

Additional policies and FAQs

Many of the items sold on Effie Butterworth are vintage and therefore could be anywhere between 30 and 150 years old. I am both thorough and consistent with my listings and I try to ensure that they are described as accurately and as honestly as possible, however no vintage item should be purchased with the expectation that it will be brand new, unless it has been listed as so. Signs of age and wear are likely to be present but will be described to the best of my knowledge.

★Handmade Lingerie

If you're looking for something different to the offerings in our current collection, we are able to take on a limited number of bespoke clients to fulfill your vintage lingerie dreams. This option offers you complete design freedom, with no limitations and the result will, naturally, be entirely unique.

It should be noted that complex garments may require in person fittings in York, UK.
